HAMILTON HAS HEART

By Kristin Archer

Exploring my hometown for the past seven years, it quickly became clear that Hamilton Has Heart! That’s the tagline for this new collaboration by local fashionistas Milli and True Hamiltonian. The local brands have come together to create a special edition of True Hamiltonian’s “Hamilton Is Home” design.

The limited edition tees and tanks with hot pink letters are $30 (there will also be special black tees with pink, sparkly letters for $45) and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to McMaster Children’s Hospital. The apparel is available at Milli from February 6 – 24.

When I asked Milli about the campaign, she says: “Hamilton is Home and where my heart is. Supporting the community in which I live and work is of the utmost importance to me. Collaborating with True Hamiltonian in support of McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation is an initiative that I am both excited and proud to be a part of.”

Max Francis, founder of True Hamiltonian, says the cause is also close to his heart: “Working with Milli and helping Mac Sick Kids was a no brainer for us. As a parent I’ve been there with a sick child, and as a Hamiltonian I’ve seen what a huge impact they have on our community.”

When Milli and True Hamiltonian asked me to be an ambassador for the cause, I’m was all for it. Big thank you to my friend Kayla Da Silva of Kay Da Silva Media for a fun photoshoot to show off the tee!
